- "Our guided tour of the Acropolis with Poppy from Greek Travellers was exceptional. We did the tour with our teenage daughters and with their grandmother. Poppy could talk to young and old alike. She was extremely knowledgeable and delivered the information in a way that was informative but very entertaining. 100% recommendable and worth every cent."

Sotiris was so much fun to tour the acropolis with. His ability to weave hilarious personal anecdotes with the amazing history of the Acropolis was something to behold. It was a wonderful experience that we highly recommend."

- "We booked a 2 hour tour of the Acropolis Museum with the guide Sotiris. The tour was excellent, and although we had been to the museum several times before, Sotiris managed to make it a memorable visit by giving life and context to the exhibits. Sotiris was professional and knowledgable, and yet made the tour fun and filled with humor. Booking was easy and quick, we got the time we asked for, and Dimitris who managed the booking was very helpful with practical advice on Athens."

2. What you can expect
Within the frame of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum tour and the different incentives that are given to us, we will delve into the position and role of women in Classical Greece; the Golden Age of Athens when concepts like Democracy were born. How did the Athenian, newborn Democracy treat women? What did the everyday life of an Athenian woman look like? What was her occupation? How did she spend her spare time? Did she have a social life? These are just a few of the questions we will explore through the exhibits that are available to us in the Acropolis Museum.
We will also explore the status of women in Greek mythology and how the epic tales of the Ancients mirrored their real life. While most are well aware of the exploits of the ancient Greek gods, the goddesses are no less important in terms of popularity and symbolic significance. Take Goddess Athena, for example, the patron goddess of Athens. The Parthenon, the most important temple of Ancient Greece and today's symbol of Democracy, was built in her honor. Athena's identity contains many faces, each one with a different symbolic meaning for society and women in particular.
Through the monuments, myths, and artifacts on display, you'll leave with a newfound appreciation for the resilience, strength, and influence of women in Greek mythology and history.
Your guide during this 4-hour Acropolis and Acropolis Museum tour in Athens will be an excellent, state-licensed guide and storyteller.
